Show Summary Details


The theme of Governor Grantham’s failure in the role of bureaucratic entrepreneur is continued in this chapter, which deals with the resettlement of squatters. This chapter also shows how autonomy was recovered through creation of capacity to address this and other policy areas effectively and how this eventually helped provide the platform for the emergence of the Hong Kong government’s future high degree of autonomy.
